New Model: Broom 30 Coupe

If you are British one should very much be proud of Broom, and what it's showing with its latest models.  Coming shortly after the launch of the awaited 35 since then already delivered in three units, is the new Broom 30 Coupe.  The styling of this new inland waters hull sport cruiser is a praise not only because of its looks, which are a perfect mix of tradition and modern, but because it gives a lot to the roots of British boat building.  The 30 Coupe marks Broom return to an entry level inland waterways cruisers.  Accommodation below is for four persons in a main cabin to fore, and convertible L-shape dinette.  Below is also a nice space L-shape galley, and separate shower head.  Other interesting features of the 30 Coupe is well size side deck, and bathing platform which apart making easy work of British style side to mooring can also stow a small tender.  Standard power is a Nanni 60hp which gives a cruise of 8 knots.  It will be interesting if like the bigger Broom models the 30 Coupe is to be offered in faster variants.  So far we don't know.
